Letting in light
Letting in light can open up any small room and create a welcoming atmosphere that potential buyers will look for when viewing new houses. Natural light can transform indoor spaces and save on energy, especially through the summer months. It also allows you to appreciate the natural beauty outside.
Your front door is the centrepiece to your home and the first thing people see so by adding a bright colour, you can set a great first impression. A recent study found that the colour of your front door can add value to your home as well as being a strong tool to influence choice and change people’s mood. A blue front door was found to add £4,000 to your house price!
Investing in better windows with double glazing can increase property value and attract more attention from buyers. Buyers are more likely to buy a house with double glazing and newer windows as they don’t need to worry about replacing them soon after making their purchase. Instead, buyers are reassured that new windows mean a warmer home and lower energy bills. Adding this investment now can add a lot more value to the property and massively increase your home’s chances of selling in the future.
Creating space either inside or outdoors can open up smaller rooms, bring natural light in and allow a natural flow between your garden and your house. A great way to achieve this is by adding bi-folding doors to your kitchen or dining room area to create an open walkway between the inside and outside and allow the house and garden to become one. If your garden has the space, why not opt for a garden room? These can create the perfect space to host all your socially-distanced BBQs, enjoy your garden and create extra space for families with children to play. A massive plus if you ever put your house on the market.
Many people are looking to move to the countryside following lockdown and often look for that typical country farmhouse aesthetic when looking at properties so why not add a stable door? These can add character to a home and pull the farmhouse look together, just like this renovation we completed below. If bi-folds are not an option in your home, new doors with windows or stable doors can bring extra light into the kitchen and allows anyone cooking to be able to take in the views or keep an eye on little ones playing.
If you do sell your home, solicitors will ask for a FENSA certificate which confirms windows and doors have been installed following building regulations and in a safe manner. Ensuring you use a company like Carrs, which is FENSA certified, means you won’t run into problems with potential buyers.
